Shell Offshore files plans to return to Alaska’s North Slope

Author: Elwood Brehmer: Alaska Journal of Commerce

A supermajor oil company is looking to advance its position on Alaska’s North Slope.

Shell Offshore Inc. has applied to form the West Harrison Bay Unit in state waters just offshore from the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska with plans to drill the area in search of oil in the coming years, according to documents submitted to the state Division of Oil and Gas.

If the Dutch oil industry giant can secure a partner to share in the costs and risks of remote offshore North Slope exploration, it expects to drill exploration wells in the West Harrison Bay Unit with at least one sidetrack each in 2023 and 2024, Shell’s initial unit plan of exploration states. read more

Countries Need to Invest $55 Trillion to Reach Emissions Target

Countries Need to Invest $55 Trillion to Reach Emissions Target

By Rajesh Kumar Singh 16 September 2020, 15:39 BST: Updated on 17 September 2020, 07:17 BST

Global economies will need to invest as much as $55 trillion through the middle of the century to meet an emissions goal and contain warming of the planet, according to a report by a group of executives from energy-intensive companies including ArcelorMittal SA, BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

Reaching net-zero carbon emissions target by 2050 will require large-scale electrification of industries, buildings and transport, as well as the use of hydrogen and biofuels in areas that can’t be electrified, according to the Energy Transitions Commission. Using less energy to produce more and recycling material will aid the efforts. Building renewable power plants will take up a bulk of the estimated investment. read more

Big Oil’s green makeover

Big Oil’s green makeover

By Steven Mufson: September 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. GMT+1

Every so often, corporations confront questions of life or death.

IBM did it in the 1990s, when its hulking mainframe computers faced the challenge of next generation PCs. A new chief executive successfully shifted IBM to services and software. Netflix did it — three times. It first played the role of disrupter, offering movie DVDs by mail and then mastering the business of online streaming. Then it changed again, generating its own content.

Now, BP, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, is aiming to ride the waves of disruption instead of being crushed under them. read more

Shell Energy has 50 vacancies in customer services…

EXTRACT FROM SCOTTISH SUN ARTICLE PUBLISHED 15 SEPT 2020

ALMOST 700,000 people have lost their jobs since the start of the pandemic, official figures reveal.

There are now 2.7million Brits claiming unemployment benefits — a leap of 120 per cent since March, when lockdown began.

The latest jobless total, announced yesterday by the Office for National Statistics, means the unemployment rate is at 4.1 per cent, up from 3.9 per cent previously.

And with five million workers still on furlough, experts are warning of more devastating losses when the scheme comes to an end next month. read more

Merkel Scrapping Nord Stream Would Unravel German Gas Strategy

(Shell may have to write off Nord Stream 2 investment if project collapses)

Merkel Scrapping Nord Stream Would Unravel German Gas Strategy

Brian Parkin, Andrew Noël and Richard Weiss: Bloomberg:

(Bloomberg) — As Angela Merkel weighs up the arguments for scrapping a Russian pipeline project, a cornerstone of the German chancellor’s carefully crafted energy strategy is at stake.

Merkel is coming under increasing pressure to ditch the Nord Stream 2 pipeline after the poisoning of Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny. Members of her own party have questioned the project and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said the decision should be a “no brainer.” read more

Extinction Rebellion activists arrested after Shell’s London HQ vandalised

Staff writer: 8 September 2020, 5:17 pm BST

Several Extinction Rebellion activists have been arrested after the Shell Centre in central London was vandalised.

Green graffiti reading “stop ecocide” was sprayed on the outside of the building. One arrestee was seen with green hands.

Earlier, around 100 protesters had gathered in Jubilee Gardens opposite Shell’s London headquarters to demonstrate against the oil and gas company.

Some demonstrators also dropped a banner from Westminster Bridge which read “Shell = Death”. read more

Why The Oil Industry’s $400 Billion Bet On Plastics Could Backfire

Why The Oil Industry’s $400 Billion Bet On Plastics Could Backfire

Scott Carpenter: Energy Sept 5, 2020Key takeaways:

  • Oil companies plan to invest $400 billion into new petrochemical plants, betting that demand for plastic will keep growing.
  • Authors of a new report say the industry and other forecasters fail to consider that large majorities favor legislation to curb plastic use and waste and that governments are acting.
  • Plastics impose a cost of $1000 per tonne — through CO2 emissions, air pollution, and collection costs. Calls to shift those costs onto producers through taxes are growing.
  • Outside experts said the long-term outlook for plastics demand remains uncertain and will depend on consumer preferences and government actions.

The COVID-19 pandemic and accelerating green growth around the world have eviscerated many of the oil industry’s dogmas: that renewables would suffer from high costs, that governments would slow-walk environmental commitments, that investors would continue to reward long-term bets on oil with generous market values.

But one nugget of wisdom has survived everything the market has thrown at it, and now oil companies like ExxonMobil and Shell are wagering billions on it: that the world’s demand for plastics is still growing, with no end in sight. read more

Australia’s $200 Billion LNG Boom Waylaid by Covid and Cracks

Australia’s $200 Billion LNG Boom Waylaid by Covid and Cracks

James Thornhill Sep 05 2020, 3:30 AM Sep 07 2020, 9:24 AM

EXTRACTS

(Bloomberg) — Cooks on strike and cracked equipment are among the latest maladies to undermine Australia’s $200 billion push to become the world’s biggest liquefied natural gas exporter.

More than a year after the completion of a decade-long LNG construction boom, two of the seven marquee projects haven’t been able to work right, the nation’s east coast urban centers face an impending gas shortage blamed partly on exports, and the government is receiving relatively meager tax revenues from fuel sales. read more

Shell Australia attempts to bring Prelude FLNG back online

SUPERMAJOR Shell has begun the process of re-starting production from its fields connected to the Prelude Floating LNG vessel offshore Western Australia, however is facing difficulties eight months after the facility was shut down over engineering problems.

Paul Hunt: Senior Journalist: Oil & Gas, Policy. 07 Sept 2020

Rubbish Broadband and even worse customer service

I’ve been having broadband issues for the past two months, numerous phone calls and emails yet the standard response is too many devices, which I’ve proven to not be the issue by providing tests over Ethernet with only one device connected. Anyway the majority of devices are smart bulbs, smart plugs and a thermostat, leaving only a laptop and TV.

The pings spike up to 8000ms and nothing will load not even the Google homepage. Also the guaranteed speed range is 8-14Mbps yet I regularly get as low as 0.5Mbps, again they don’t see that to be an issue. Their advisors don’t know what pings are so their answer is that I need fibre when in reality they just need to fix my broadband. read more

Why the World Worries About Russia’s Natural Gas Pipeline

Why the World Worries About Russia’s Natural Gas Pipeline By Anna Shiryaevskaya and Dina Khrennikova | Bloomberg September 4, 2020 at 3:26 p.m. GMT+1

A natural gas pipeline being built under the Baltic Sea from Russia to the German coast is shaking up geopolitics. Nord Stream 2, as it’s called, fuels worries in the U.S. and other countries that the link could give the Kremlin new leverage over Germany and other NATO allies. As the project neared completion, U.S. sanctions and calls for European restrictions have left the construction in limbo as political tensions with Moscow mounted.

1. What is Nord Stream 2?

It’s a 1,230-kilometer (764-mile) gas pipeline that will double the capacity of the existing undersea route from Russian fields to Europe — the original Nord Stream — which opened in 2011. Russia’s Gazprom PJSC owns the joint Russian-European venture, with Royal Dutch Shell Plc and four other investors contributing half of the 9.5 billion-euro ($11.2 billion) cost. Initially expected to come online by the end of 2019, the link has been delayed by U.S. sanctions that forced Swiss contractor Allseas Group SA to withdraw its pipelaying vessels. The pipeline operator is looking for solutions to lay the remaining 6% of the pipe, which includes construction work in Denmark’s waters. read more
